"FLAMING W" HIKE AND PRE SEASON DANCE Making sure that this year will be a banner year of activity for Weber College, student body and class officers have started the ball rolling by having the Pre-season dance and the "Flaming W" hike. The dance held in the Weber College ballroom, September 3, at 8:30 p. m. was attended by numerous present and prospective students and nearly every member of the faculty. The old Weber spirit was awakened after summer and many splendid friendships were renewed. Saturday, September 18, when ninety cheerful, happy students climbed to Malan's Heights and strolled down into the Basin to participate in a colorful bonfire program. A bubbling brook of sparkling, clear water and a romantic full moon were used to advantage by the youth of the College. Dr. E. L. Miner and several students should receive high commendation for the splendid "W" on the peak. PUBLICATIONS HOLD SPOTLIGHT Continued from Page One "dink" caps by freshmen as soon as the caps are ready.

Monson, English department head, and Charles A. Osmond, science department, as faculty members. Upon his election, the freshman class president will become a member. FIRST IMPRESSIONS Buzz-z-z-z! The hum of registration activity nearly swept us off our feet, as we opened the door of the Weber gym. But Mrs. Hall smiled encouragement and invited us to enter. We gratefully accepted a class schedule and relaxed in the first two chairs we could see. As we caught our breath, we peered from behind the schedules to take stock of the things that were going on about us. Several faculty members, who fairly seemed to radiate enthusiasm, were encouraging puzzled, depressed students, and helping them to arrange for the classes they desired. Helena Danielson was describing the lovely auditorium, swimming pool, and dance hall to some students who had not had the pleasure of seeing them. Elzada Carlson recognized us and stopped fluttering about long enough to introduce us to the Student Body Officers. They took us up to the Student body offices where a lusty voiced orator down in one corner was proclaiming the immortal words of Patrick Henry. (He later turned out to be a namesake of that illustrous forefather, one Patrick J. Quinn, authority on Moonlight hikes.) Frank McQuown and Max Mc-Ewan were sitting at a table sorting out copy for the Signpost (newspaper) and chuckling about some of the "rare stuff" the the Signpost (signboard) exhibited before some student tore the copy down. Wayne Bundy and Howard Coray were reclining on a desk disagreeing about the "Big Money" by Dos Passos, but Jim Andrews kept crooning in their ears and disturbed the argumentative mood. Ray Burdett and Kathleen Painter sauntered in and kindly took us over to Mr. Stevenson who helped us finish registering. He introduced us to Miss Romans and Dix Jones who completed our registration by collecting our fees. It's plain to see there is going to be plenty of work here but it is going to be spiced with "lots of fun!" Soph: "All right, Freshie, down on your knees!" A SOPHOMORE'S SOLILOQUY The sight of these wandering freshmen Reminds me of the days when I Roamed around like these poor little students And would look no sophomore in the eye. Mr. Monson I asked for the loan of his broom Mr. Benson I asked for a comb Miss Ashton I asked for a new history book From Mr. Swenson I asked the way home. I went to the office for classes On the campus I always looked glum But when I look at these freshmenI ask, " Was I ever that dumb?" Anon.
